Poultry breeding company Aviagen has added a fourth farm to its great grandparent (GGP) production complex located in Natividade da Serra, state of São Paulo, Brazil.

Representing an investment of US$4 million, the first birds in the new facility were placed on July 28. With state-of-the-art construction, equipment and features, the entire four-house complex reflects the industry's highest standards in quality, capacity and efficiency.
According to president of Aviagen Latin America Ivan Pupo Lauandos, the addition of the brand new house at the Natividade da Serra complex further ensures the production of all genetic lines for Latin American customers.
